The TV anime “Spice and Wolf: MERCHANT MEETS THE WISE WOLF” won the 12th Dengeki Novel Award “Silver Award” published by KADOKAWA Dengeki Bunko, and the series will celebrate its 15th anniversary in 2021 with a total circulation of 5 million. Based on the extremely popular light novel that has surpassed the mainstream. Currently, the sequel “Spice and Wolf Spring Log” and the spin-off series “Spice and Wolf: Wolf and Parchment” have been published, and this work is very popular not only in Japan but also overseas.
This TV anime is not a sequel to the previously animated films “Spice and Wolf (2008)” and “Spice and Wolf II (2009),” but a completely new story that will be drawn from the beginning.

“Tabi no Yukue” is a song arranged by Hayato Tanaka, who also worked on the major debut song “flowers,” which was selected as the “Fate/Grand Order” Memorial Movie 2023 theme song and became a hot topic. A dramatic song where Hana Hope’s vocals gradually increase in scale and stimulate the lachrymal glands.

Craft Lawrence, a young peddler, spends his days selling goods from town to town, with a horse as his partner to pull his cart.
One day, he visits a small village surrounded by golden wheat fields and meets a beautiful girl with ears and a tail.
“My name is Holo.”
Holo, who calls himself the “Wise Wolf”, is the embodiment of the wolf that rules over fertility.
Hearing her desire to return to her hometown of Yoitsu Forest, which is supposed to be far north, Lawrence and Holo become companions on a business trip heading north.
However, the peddler’s journey is full of unexpected ups and downs… The carriage carrying the lonely peddler and the lonely wolf now begins to run noisily.

●Please tell us how you felt when it was decided that you would be in charge of the opening theme.
I was honestly happy to be able to work with such a historical work. Since this is the opening of the story, I wanted to do my best to make the content feel exciting.
●Please tell us your impressions after reading the original story and scenario of “Spice and Wolf.”
A very peaceful rural landscape surrounded by nature, with vast grasslands and small villages from the European Middle Ages, came to mind before my eyes. I could even feel the wind rushing through me. The various events that occur during the road trip between the main characters, Lawrence and Holo, were interesting, and I wanted to see the next episode more and more.
●Please tell us the name of the song and the thoughts behind the song. The holo who spends time with the protagonist is a wolf incarnate, and although she would normally be feared, she is actually a cute, fun and bright girl. So, I sang it in a way that was warm and human, but also conveyed the sublimity of the divine wolf, so that it would resonate gently and broadly across the meadow.
●Please give a message to those who are looking forward to the anime. Please get in the mood with the opening song. Please enjoy watching it while anticipating the song’s title, “Tabi no Yukue.” It might be even more exciting if you add a tail and ears to it!
